Dining out ......six body idioms


eye to eye

Last week a group of four friends had to visit Karnal for an assignment. After  completing their assignment  they decided to have dinner. They were looking for a decent but average  place. They walked some distance and saw a big signboard, stating 'Welcome Hotel.Famous for Indian, Chinnese, and South Indian food'.(As if  South Indian food is not Indian). All the four saw eye to eye and entered the Hotel. There were twelve tables, which were all full. They waited near a table, anticipating that the persons occupying it would vacate it . One of the four friends, Anil,  had a gut feeling that something was wrong there. He expressed his fear but the other three just laughed it away. Actually, his ears were grounded. He  heard their talk and was sure that they were terrorists.  They were five of them seated  at the table. Before Anil could narrate what they were talking, one of the occupants of the table got up with a revolver in his hand  shouted loudly,"All  of you listen. Keep your belongings on the table or you will be shot dead. Fast! No delaying!!" Every one was stunned, with their faces red with fear. All of a sudden six men , with revolvers surrounded the terrorists and shouted,"Hands up". Now it was the turn of the terrorists to be stunned. With eggs on their faces,they surrendered to the police, disguised in plain clothes. Immediately the hotel was declared closed. The four friends,with kick in their teeth, went out  dragging their feet.

  10. Reminded me of the Mumbai bombings. Like the way your story ended with terrorists being caught. If only that could happen in reality.
